PACSCL Consortial Survey Initiative


This is a completed project, and the site is being preserved as an historical document.
The original database has been archived off line.

A number of the collections have been processed and finding aids are available at the site below.
The remaining records are being evaluated for inclusion in the finding aids site as collection-level records
(this project should be complete in fall 2018).

You are encouraged to visit the finding aids database for PACSCL's subsequent archival project, the Hidden Collections processing processing project funded by the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) at



The Philadelphia Area Consortium of Special Collections Libraries (PACSCL) Consortial Survey Initiative is a 30-month project funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to assess backlogged archival collections at 22 Philadelphia area libraries, archives, and museums.

This site will be updated regularly to keep participants and others informed on the project's progress.
